The concert will include "When I Fall in Love," "Ghost Riders" featuring Paul Zorovich, a medley from "My Fair Lady," "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" featuring Bruce Payne, "Ashokan Farewell," and ‘Will the Circle be Unbroken."

This concert is free; however, the well-known yellow buckets will be available for making a free-will donation. Bring your own lawn chair. Unvaccinated persons are asked to wear masks and socially distance, while vaccinated people do not need to follow those protocols. In the event that the concert is moved to the Baptist Church, only vaccinated persons may attend.

Refreshments will be provided this week by St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.

The July 28 concert will feature the group Paulsen and Baker with special guest Warren Paul.

The Penn Yan Community Chorus promotes music in Yates and neighboring counties, and wants everyone to know that all are welcome to join, and auditions are not required.
